About Honey

Adoption Fee: $95
Australian Cattle Dog
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Female

Honey was rescued off of the street as a puppy, underweight and injured. We rehabilitated her and worked out her fearfulness until her true personality appeared (still afraid of fireworks, but thunder is not so bad anymore. She loves to hug and cuddle, plays fetch like a pro, loves to ride in the car and would like to be someones constant companion. She does not like being left alone for very long and wants to be with you always. She loves people and will approach and kiss almost any one that shows her attention. Like a typical cattle dog, she plays rough and she should avoid children that can get hurt by getting knocked down. She does not nip, or bite like a usual cattle dog, but does push and shove a bit. She walks well on a leash, is house trained, crate trained, muzzle trained and knows some basic commands. Very intelligent she has bonded with her foster family,who was considering giving her a permanent home, however as she matured she became aggressive towards their female dog. She gets along great with their male dog and will play with him for hours. However, same sex aggression is an issue and she ONLY gets along with male dogs. She CANNOT go to a home with other female dogs. She will need a special person that will understand that there may be a period of adjustment as she will likely miss her current home for a little while. She has been a great foster, and she will be missed. She needs a place where she does not have to be kept apart from the other dogs in the home. She can climb fences, so it is not a good idea to leave her alone unsupervised in a yard. In the past she has climbed the fence and ran to the front door where she begged to get back inside with people. She has some resource guarding issues that are curently being worked on, and she requires several fetch and retrieve sessions a week to keep her mentally and physically sound (this could be replaced by other activities but walks alone are not enough for this active girl.The ideal situation would be something local so the foster could help with the transition but this is not a deal breaker because it is believed she will adjust quickly to someone that gives her a lot of love and attention.
